**Even & Odd numbers**

**Even numbers **are whole numbers that can be divided

evenly by 2. Example of even numbers are: 2, 4, 6, 8,

10, 12, 14, 16, 18...

**Odd numbers **are whole numbers that cannot be divided

evenly by 2. Example of odd numbers are: 1, 3, 5, 7, 7, 9,

9, 11, 13, 15, 17...

**yes, zero is considered an even number**

Is It Even or Odd?

To tell whether a number is even or odd, look at the number

in the ones place. That single number will tell you whether

the entire number is odd or even.

An even number ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8.

An odd number ends in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9.

**Rules for when you add, subtract, or multiply even andodd numbers.**

Adding Even and Odd Numbers

even + even = even

4 + 2 = 6

even + odd = odd

4 + 3 = 7

odd + odd = even

5 + 3 = 8

**Subtracting Even and Odd Numbers**

even - even = even

4 - 2 = 2

even - odd = odd

4 - 3 = 1

odd - odd = even

5 - 3 = 2

**Multiplying Even and Odd Numbers**

even x even = even

4 x 2 = 8

even x odd = even

4 x 3 = 12

odd x odd = odd

5 x 3 = 15

**Division, or The Fraction Problem**

Division are Fractions are not even numbers or odd

numbers, because they are not whole numbers. They are

only parts of numbers, and can be written in different ways.

The terms “even number” and “odd number” are only used for

whole numbers and their opposites (additive inverses).
